Couldn't hurt.
Do you remember when Shutt was coach assistant and he tryed to learn how to make fast one-timer shoots? He put 100 pucks on the ice and the purpose was to shoot as fast a player can to an open net. Pierre Turgeon (who was our best forward) slaped with an average of 2.5 pucks per second. Shutt wasn't impressed. Shutt did the same exercise, it looked so fast, he slaped an average of 6 pucks per second. Most of them were on the net, real bullets of fire. It was 10 years after he retired. It was on the sports news. It was WOW!!

Mike Bossy said many times he was available to give shooting lessons to Hab players. The coaches on press conference always said it cannot be learned, it's a inner natural talent that only Bossy and others have (Hull, Shutt, Larmer, etc).
I think Bossy can help. If the shooting quality improve by 10%, it's already something signifiant.
